    This is such an easy pud to make, but looks unbelievably impressive. That, combined with the fact that you can easily make everything ahead of time and assemble at the last minute, makes it the perfect dinner party dessert. Did I mention that it's healthy, too?

    This gorgeous persimmon cake smells like autumn. Use very soft persimmons for this recipe, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. A squeeze of lemon juice may be added to the puree to prevent discolouration and enhance taste.

    Spanish persimmons have a firm yellowy orange coloured skin and sweet orange flesh, similar to a mango. Persimmons make a great snack for children as they’re seedless and stone free.
